Style Iconoclast: Paul Weller


Girls always think mod means Edie Sedgwick, heavy eyeliner and stripes. But when you ask stylish guys about mod, they always seem to think of Paul Weller and "Blow Up." I like that a lot better.


If we didn't have guys like Paul, skinny cute boys wouldn't be wearing super tight pants, jean jackets and joining bands. I think it's safe to say "indie musicians" are in serious debt to him for getting them laid.

Yes, music nerds, that was Poly Styrene and Factory's Tony Wilson at the very beginning of the clip :)

I love how Paul wanted to explore R&B and soul through the Style Council, a completely different sound from the pop punk of the Jam. The outcome is very sexy.
